Looking for a fun and easy activity for your child or children to do as a fast finisher activity? Try optical illusion art with your kids! Not only is this piece of art simple to create, but you don’t need fancy materials to make it.
Make a popsicle stick puzzle with your kids! It’s especially interesting for all the popsicle lovers out there. It’s a fun project and an activity, that will keep the kids occupied and will also cut down on waste. You may use the wider sticks to create a puzzle as well and you’re free to make it as large as you want.
No matter what you are celebrating, everything is better with confetti! This week’s #MakeArtMondays craft is a reusable confetti popper. These confetti cannons are not only easy to make, they also make an amazing showing at any celebration. And of course, with the new year approaching, you and your family can use these at midnight on NYE, to ring in the new year!
National Gallery West would like to take this opportunity to wish all our followers a prosperous 2021!
This week’s #MakeArtMondays craft is a kaleidoscope. It is an optical device consisting of mirrors that reflect images of bits of coloured glass in a symmetrical geometric design through a viewer. Endlessly rotating the device changes the loose fragments into different mirrored designs!
This week’s craft is a piggy bank. A piggy bank is the traditional name of a coin container; usually used by children to collect loose change. Here, we’ve used recycle materials to create it. This would be very useful in saving a few dollars towards shopping for the upcoming Christmas season! Do enjoy creating this old time favorite!
Slime is a unique play material composed of various materials. One of the key aspects of slime formulation is that the materials must be safe for young children. In this video, we’ve created slime using simple, household materials.
Hello everyone. Meet the team behind the Virtual Summer Workshop. Our annual summer workshop was unfortunately affected, as many industries have been by Covid-19. In an effort to continue to give back to the community especially those who support and look forward to our yearly engagements, we decided to recreate our summer workshop and provide a virtual experience in light of the pandemic. We value the efforts of providing you with an experience that was certainly incomparable to any we’ve ever had as well as the efforts of those that participated. We enjoyed each tutorial that we made and we hope that you had as much fun as we did in completing each project.
From all of us at National Museum West and National Gallery West, we hope that you continue to strive to reach your ultimate creatively unique self.
We thank you for your involvement and we hope to see you again next year.
